2020 Community Involvement
Annual Halloween Candy Buy-Back
We had a tremendous turn our for this years Campi Cares Candy Buy-Back! We were lucky to have beautiful weather, and great company. Thank you to everyone who came out and supported our troops by donating Halloween candy.
We are happy to have collected 825 pounds of candy that will be shipped overseas to our troops which means we will be making a donation of $1,000 to Team Shamrock and Tunnel to Towers. Thank you Kathy Cunningham for all of your selfless efforts over the many years! Thanks again to everyone who came out to support our Candy Buy-Back initiative!
CampiDental is happy to announce that even during these uncertain times we are still hosting our annual Halloween Candy Buy-Back. There will be adjustments made to how it works to ensure we’re taking all of the proper health and safety precautions.
Since 2005, Campi Dental has collected more than 7,500 pounds of candy through the Candy Buy-Back Program. Join Us for Warm Apple Cider & Individually Wrapped Baked Goods While Donating Your Halloween Candy!
“Our goal is to create grass-root programs that support the unique needs of our community. We hope that this provides the opportunity to give something back to the troops defending our nation — who could sure use a treat or two,” said Dr. Jack Campi.
If you’re like most parents you’ll want to donate that cavity causing candy and show your kids how they can help our troops! Campi Cares philanthropic efforts focus on overall health and wellness, nutrition and education in our community.
Annual School Supply Drive
Supporting our community, fundraising, and helping those in need is a core component of our practice dating back to the 1930’s. Since March, we have had to put all community efforts on hold, which has been a very hard thing for us to do. Every August for as long as we can remember focused on collecting backpacks and school supplies for local children that are in need. Both our team and our patients look forward to this cause every year and the impact it has. There are many unknowns as to what this school year will look like. Whether it be in person or virtual, we support all the parents and their decision. Due to COVID-19 we are unfortunately not permitted to collect supplies, but we are however still looking to help those in need. If you know someone local that could use our financial support this upcoming school year, please let us know! We will be providing local families with a gift card donation for items that will support them this upcoming year. We welcome all patients and members of the community to do the same. Feel free to bring in a Staples, Walmart, or Target gift cards and drop them off at the front desk anytime.
Children’s Dental Health Month, February 2020
Dental Health starts as a child so Campi Cares has taken an invested interest in making sure parents have accessibility to tips to support each and every parent since they play a vital role in their children’s oral health. Developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. You can start by setting an example; taking good care of your own teeth sends a message that oral health is something to be valued. Anything that makes taking care of teeth fun, like brushing along with your child or letting them choose their own toothbrush, encourages proper oral care.
- Clean your babies gums after feedings.
- Once teeth grow in, start brushing with a soft brush.
- Schedule their first dental visit around their 1st birthday.
- Brush twice a day. Use a pea-sized dab of toothpaste with a soft-bristled toothbrush.
- Wear a mouth guard in sports to protect your teeth.
- Avoid sugary snacks and drinks.
- Assign the responsibility of brushing to your child.

Our doctors and team are excited to be visiting schools within our community throughout the month of February. They will be discussing the importance of oral health with the children and teachers as well as handing out oral hygiene bags that include take-home guides for proper brushing and flossing. Stay tuned for some great photos documenting the times spent at schools.
